English term or phrase: standoff/stand off distance (lenses)
Hi, friends,

I know there are several other options for standoff/stand off in the glossary, but my problem is I don´t quite understand what standoff distance means in this case of a hot metal detector manual:

"Three different focal length lenses are available to cover a wide range of standoff distances and field of view. The ideal mounting position for the HMD is directly above the middle of the roll table as this provides the best focus over the full field of view and minimizes problemas with obstructions and reflections."

It seems to refer to the distance from the lens to the object being measured, so it´s not really a "isolation distance", that standoff usually means.

Thanks in advance.
